Advisory Board Public Hearings & Outcomes

The National Institute of Correction’s Advisory Board is a 16-member panel appointed by the Attorney General to advise and assist the Institute in performing its mission. Past NIC Advisory Boards have periodically organized hearings to explore important topics of concern to corrections professionals and decision makers. The purposes of the hearings are to:

  • Educate the NIC Advisory Board about important trends in corrections-related policy, programs, and practices.

  • Provide the NIC with input and advice from the field that can be integrated into the Institute’s vision and strategic plan.

  • Help the NIC in achieving a high level of excellence in identifying and meeting the needs of the field of corrections.
